Organizational Comments: Red Wings Asst GM - Ryan Martin
What GRC says: Fall 2017 A two-way energy player who plays with pace, Elkins is ideally suited to the third line, but the rangy forward should also see time as a key player on then penalty kill and has had success on the powerplay as well. After several seasons overseas, Elkins looked to be struggling with the ice size (lack of room) and the intensity of the North American game, but should round into shape and produce 10-15 goals.
